I can still see Robbie Miller, drummer in our Hello(again) band, throwing out the lyric line “I need a pill and a drink and a dark place to think.” Lorraine Finch, Deb Copeland and I were looking for a third verse lead line for DARK HEART, and Robbie delivered.
Curiously enough Dark Heart & in particular Robbie’s lyric line has inspired:
Alberta based Fan/musician, Carol Tudor, did a cover version of Dark Heart at two AB Festivals with her ukulele and fiddle troupe.
“My niece shared your Dark Heart with me today. I fell in love with the swing of the song and especially the line “I need some pills and a drink and a dark place to think.”
“What is it with you Canadians and great music! Loving ‘Dark Heart’ and have added to ‘The Signal’ playlist over on Octopus Music London. Now I need some pills and a drink and some dark place to think….”
Dark Heart keeps coming back even though Blue Dirt Girl recorded, a cover version, 7 years ago.
